In the Jaintia Hills of northeast India, a young boy descends everyday into the 'rathole' coalmines. He works in these hard and dangerous conditions, so he can support his family.
But in the dark he dreams of digging to the 'other end of the world'. He cherishes the hope of a better life.
Even the darkest tunnel is no limit to the boy's imagination and courage.
But does the boy's dreams carry a burden too immense to overcome? Are the inequities of the world too vast for the boy's hope to become reality?
